Odin's Day

Happy birthday to pixelfish!

Oh, I was overly optimistic yesterday.

Snot goblins are spreading. They are now in my head as well as my chest. So I am a snuffly coughy mess. With shortness of breath. Fun!

Valentine's Day
I'm with ktpinto here. Great pic!

Plants die and are cat toys. Chocolate, I should have only in moderation; I really need to eat healthier. (I wouldn't say no to something healthy + yummy.)

I like words. I like stuff-you-made.

My Birthday
Again, what I like best is stuff-you-made; it is most special to me, most treasured. If you don't make stuff and/or want to buy me stuff, my Amazon and not-Amazon wishlists are on my sidebar. Nonmaterial wishlist: someone to give a little project-based help around the house.

Judas meets... well, I won't give anything away.

Half Sick of Shadows is dulcinbradbury's Wind Tunnel Dreams. This round, she's giving half the proceeds to s00j.

Publishers Weekly Needs Reviewers!
Quoth rosefox: "I'm surprised to find that I'm a little short on reviewers, especially for mass market romance (of all kinds, from historical to paranormal) and thrillers. I also seem to have misplaced a bunch of emails from people who wrote to me the last time I put an ad out, so if you applied before and haven't heard from me, please feel free to apply again.

At this point I am only looking for people who have already done a lot of nonfiction writing, preferably book or movie reviewing, and are familiar and comfortable with the editorial process, small wordcounts (I ask for 180-200 words and edit them down to about 145), and tight deadlines. The pay is $25 per review and I generally send each reviewer about one book every two weeks, though if I bring on many more reviewers that may stretch to one book every three or four weeks.

If you know anyone who would be interested in reviewing SF/F/H or mass market titles for PW, please ask them to email with a summary of their professional nonfiction writing experience."

Insulin appears to shield the brain from toxic proteins associated with Alzheimer's disease, U.S. researchers said on Monday, supporting a theory that Alzheimer's may be a third form of diabetes.
